The solution of Question 81 Chapter 2 of +2-A

:

 Balance Sheet (for the year ended 31st March 2019) Liabilities Amount Assets Amount By Profit and Loss A/c 40,000 To Profit Transferred to *2 A’s Capital A/c 19,500 B’s Capital A/c 15,500 C’s Capital A/c 5,000 40,000 40,000 40,000

Working Note: –

Calculation of Actual Amount of Interest on A’s, B’s, & C’s Capital
Profit for 2018= 40,000
Profit-sharing ratio 5: 4: 1

 Interest on A’s Capital = 40,000 X 5 10

Interest on A’s Capital = 20,000/-

 Interest on B’s Capital = 40,000 X 4 10

Interest on B’s Capital = 16,000/-

 Interest on C’s Capital = 40,000 X 1 10

Interest on C’s Capital = 4,000 /-

C’s Actual Profit Share i. e. Rs 4,000 is less than his Minimum Guaranteed Profit i. e. Rs 5,000
Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = = 5,000 − 4,000 = Rs 1,000
This deficiency is to be borne by A and B equally.

This deficiency of Rs 1,000 is to be borne by A and B equally.

 A’s Share of Profit = 1,000 X 1 2

A’s Share of Profit = 500

 B’s Share of Profit = 1,000 X 1 2

B’s Share of Profit= 500

Now, Final distributed among the partners

 A’s Share of Profit = 20,000 – 500 =19,500 B’s Share of Profit = 16,000 – 500 =15,500 C’s Share of Profit = 4,000 + 1,000 =5,000
